Persona 5 news soon?

Well, this obviously means that we'll get Persona related news soon (maybe at E3?), and that it will be also related to the PS3.  I think this could mean one of the following: 
 
  1. Persona 5 for the PS3 (I hope that this is it, personally)
  2. Persona 2 for PSOne Classics
  3. Revelations: Persona for PSOne Classics (I doubt that this will be it because of the PSP iteration)
  4. Persona 4 remake for the PS3
  5. Persona 3 remake for the PS3 (will probably not happen because of the many iterations of P3)
 
Edit: Never mind.  Seems that it's just Revelations: Persona related after all.  It's still interesting and weird that the game might end up playable on the PS3, though.

If it's already classified, that probably means it's a PSOne classic. I doubt Persona 5 is ready for classification.

I don't think the older Persona games were rated M although I may be wrong. I think it's most likely P5.

PSN release of the first game.

Seems like it would make way more sense to announce Persona 5 at TGS instead of E3.

@carlthenimrod: That's what I would think.  Either that or even a Japanese gaming mag. like Famitsu, but who knows.

This.  It's the same name as the Persona PSP remake released last year.

But they already have it for download on the PSP as well as a UMD disc.  To make it on the PS3 they'd need to remake the game's controls (easy) and give it graphical improvements, mainly with the resolution (not as easy).  I don't know why they'd commit to doing that when the PSP version didn't even do so well in NA, unless it's a quick and dirty port ala Phoenix Wright from DS to Wii.

Wait a second, I don't get it - Atlus don't publish their games in Australia, it's usually Square Enix that picks it up?

@Zero_: Actually, Ubisoft was the publisher in Australia for Persona 4.  Maybe no plans for an Australian release have been planned yet so they''e just leaving Atlus USA as a place holder in the meantime.

Atlus is not beneath this.

But this is for the Australian territory.  Was the remake released there yet?

Ah, I guess not.  The explanation by Siliconera makes it seem that it's definitely a Persona 1 release in Australia. 
 
...Sucks.

@ryanwho: Persona 1 is a Teen rated game. I personally have no idea what it could be.

How the hell is "Fantasy themes and violence" an M??

#18 Posted by YetiAntics (1490 posts) -

Its not a modern Persona game without "Language" "Partial Nudity" and "Suggestive Themes" in the rating.

Those "fantasy themes" are pretty dark in nature.

Fantasy themes and violence = Mature rating?
 
Australia.... *sigh*

I like how all the fans (including me) got all hyped when they saw this.

Added content could up the rating. New cutscenes could do this. New demons could do this. Cock demon, etc.
#23 Posted by Rxanadu (509 posts) -

Well, P1 and P2 are both T-rated games, and I highly doubt Atlus is about to remake P4 for the PS3 nor remake P3 (as that would just cut into sales for the PSP remake for P3).  This only leaves one conclusion:  

info about P5 is on the horizon 
 
Hopefully, it revolves around an announcement of a worldwide release of the game.

If they still have the Snow Queen quest in there then it's worthy of an M I think. Not sure about that though since it was edited out of the original NA release so that they could sell the game to a larger market, but now the Persona series is sort of targeted at an older audience anyway.
 
This is what I mean though - before Mara got his driving licence. :P
(text is messed up since it's a hack of the English version and it's trying to find Japanese characters that don't exist)
